Teeny Babies: Halloween Style

Halloween 2011 photo by Jowei

   I've come to realize that Halloween might be my favorite holiday. I don't have much of a Christmas spirit and I can't unsee the sales pitch behind Valentine's, but there's something special about Halloween. All the free candy is a definite plus, but what really appeals to me is that there seems to be a bit of magic in the air. It's the time of the year were the weird and unusual becomes the norm.

   Not surprisingly, my most recent work has been influenced by Halloween. A couple of weeks ago I decided to give my Teeny Babies a new twist.

   It all started with Rüdiger, a Teeny Baby vampire. I made him on a whim and people seemed to love him. I asked around  for ideas on my facebook page and on Instagram. People were quick to respond will all sorts of awesome suggestions. I chose my favorites and started sewing.

   When it was all said and done I had seven Halloween Teeny Babies in search of a new home. I made a werewolf, a black cat, a witch, a vampire, a boy that doesn't fear monsters, a baby Wednesday Addams, and a zombie. Picking a favorite was hard for me, but I finally chose Mary, the Teeny Baby Zombie.

   Do you have a favorite?

   Oz, the Teeny Baby Werewolf deserves a special mention. He was my first attempt at a double sided doll: one side shows his human face and the other his wolf. I was pleased with the results and might be making more in the future.
